Gaelle Le Berre is a reportage wedding photographer from France and more locally, Finistère

My name is Gaelle and I am a professional wedding photographer with studies in Applied Arts (Nantes, France), Graphic Arts (Quimper, France) and a Diploma in Applied Photography (RMIT, Melbourne) under my belt. I am passionate about everything I do as a wedding photographer: from creating a great working rapport with my clients to ensure their special day is as relaxed and free-flowing as possible; to artfully capturing the pure emotions, small gestures and loving details of this day in the most natural and reflective way. In addition to my great passion for capturing life’s most beautiful moments on film, I proudly possess many years of experience and prestigious photography awards - both at home and abroad. My fervour for photography came to light when I was 15 years old and began experimenting with the process of developing photos in a dark room. In that moment, I discovered my passion for encapsulating real life in the art of film, a passion which only continued to grow as I did. I began my professional career within photography at the age of 21, where I worked as a photojournalist for Boston’s Canton Newspaper in the USA, acting as a mirror to the world. Aspiring to develop my technique and expertise within photography, I then furthered my studies at RMIT in Melbourne, Australia where I won two greatly prestigious awards for my work (Victorian Photography Student of the Year, 2001 - Gold and Silver awards). Highly-qualified and ready to take on the world, I returned to Europe and became actively involved in several projects in London with well known companies such as London Dungeons, Tesco and Vittel. I was later hired as a photo technician at Tapistry MM - a large lab in SoHo - where I was responsible for all C41 development, applying traditional darkroom techniques of colour and development. During this unforgettable time in my life, I rubbed shoulders and worked with the biggest names in fashion and music photography, including; Kevin Westemberg, Miles Aldridge, Kevin Westemberg, Derek Henderson and many others. This exhilarating career path has led me to the life I currently lead. After four years at home in France, working as a photo sales technician and dedicating myself to my family of five, I am now living out my dream job as a professional photographer. Still to this day nothing thrills me more than the challenge of capturing each individual couple’s special day in the most organic and unrestrained way. To be able to capture more than a picture - to capture a moment, a feeling, a thought - that is what I live for. [Melbourne Wedding Photographer]

Australian Wedding Photojournalism by Alan Rogers

With every wedding I photograph I bring along 40+ years of photographic experience for the Bride, Groom & their families. My approach allows everyone to fully enjoy the wedding because I will not overly direct and pose people. The day goes so quickly, and I believe Brides and Grooms deserve to have as much time as possible with family and friends. It is during these times that the moments are most sincerest. As a father of four beautiful children myself, I understand how precious family is, and how images seized today will be treasured, becoming irreplaceable in years to come. My goal for every Bride and Groom is to capture images that tell the true story, heart and soul of their wedding! [Melbourne Wedding Photographer]

Melbourne wedding photography by Carley Payne of Victoria, Australia

I am a candid wedding photographer based in Melbourne who works hard to ensure not a single important moment is missed. Photography became a big part of my life in 2010 when bought my first DSLR and started taking landscape photos. It then progressed into event photography, a bit of portraiture and then wedding photography in 2014. I still really enjoy going on adventures on my free weekends and capturing the beauty of this world we live in. I love traveling and meeting new people. I lost my dad suddenly back in 2014. Now, I’m not telling you this to get sympathy, I’m telling you this so you can understand my drive. I know how important and special moments are with loved ones - both the big and small moments - I strive to capture as much as I can for my couples. I really focus on family photos and candid images of family members because I believe they are so important and those memories are irreplaceable. [Melbourne Wedding Photographer]

Wedding Photographer Gihan De Silva of Sri Lanka

From entrancing Hollywood stars and celestial beauty queens to awe-inspiring super cars, from the over-the-top extravagance of Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas to grand weddings in New York City – the photographic odyssey of Gihan De Silva has captured it all. Gihan’s odyssey which began on that fateful moment when as a young man he was enthralled by his father’s venerable Hasselblad camera has unfolded into a jet-setting lifestyle which very well could itself be the stuff of silver screen fantasy. But of course, though firmly ensconced at the starry zenith of his art, Gihan De Silva has not forgotten his roots. As the heir to Olga Studios which has a heritage of over 75 years in Sri-Lankan photography, Gihan has turned the gaze of his photography homewards with hope of imparting in the local photographic scene some of his hard-won lessons from Hollywood. In 2008, Gihan embarked on journey which – sans exaggeration – was entirely uncharted territory for a Sri-Lankan photographer – he moved to Hollywood, California. To make it in Hollywood, the centre of the entertainment universe, is for a photographer perhaps the ultimate litmus test of their abilities. This is precisely what Gihan did, and the testimony of this is to be found in the Hollywood stars and brands he has worked with. The most special day of your life deserves more from its photographs than the drab acknowledgement that you and your spouse were merely there. It deserves from them a celebration of the culmination of your love for each other through every shot and a crystallization of the joy & promise of that moment that will remain timeless. This is the promise of Gihan De Silva photography, that yours will not be just another formulaic album to prove that you had a wedding but rather that every once in a while when you open your wedding album, the memories of that day will come poignantly flooding back. To this end, Gihan – exemplifying his commitment to the utilization of new technology – has been at the vanguard of the use of both the 4D camera which lends dramatic effect to the backgrounds of pictures and a wedding album with a front page featuring a video screen to complement the still photos inside. Of course, as with all of Gihan’s work you can expect that his wedding photography too has been enriched by the cosmopolitanism of his photographic odyssey, and indeed true to form Gihan has shot weddings in locations as diverse from each other as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Washington DC, Texas, Florida, Sydney, Sri-Lanka & India.

Wedding Photographer Australia - Tasmania photography by Ed Jones

Born in Winchester UK, I moved to Australia in the early 1980s so my family could take over my grandfathers' farm. Even at this age, my life was surrounded by visual imagery, with my Uncle a Wedding and Portrait photographer, and a deep fascination with the world as portrayed in the pages of my grandfathers National Geographic Magazine. After leaving school, I pursued a career as a pilot, but my camera was ever present in my Nav Bag so that I could capture the people and places that I visited. In 2012, I walked away from aviation, to pursue my photography full time. Whilst a career in photojournalism wasn't on the cards for me, I stumbled into a career as a wedding photographer while also working part-time at the local newspaper as a ringer photographer. My style is driven by my love of the photojournalistic style, along with my passion for street photography, a genre that I indulge whenever I find myself in an interesting city with time to kill wandering the streets looking for anything that grabs my attention. I also love taking time to create portraits, I love the collaborative nature of working with someone to try and tell their story in a single frame. I am passionate about my wedding photography and want every client to get the absolute best representation of their day I can record. For this reason, I limit myself to 30 weddings per year.

Creative Portraits and wedding photography | Bride & groom portrait walking in front of colorful wall outside
Portraits are part of every wedding, of course, but some photos have the ability to sear themselves into the memory, providing an unforgettable image that rises above the common convention. Wedding photojournalists shooting portraits work within an expanded set of parameters, just like their counterparts in the news world: Some direction and setup is acceptable in order to fully capture subjects in the context of who they are and what they are feeling. Yet everyone approaches wedding portraits...Read more
Sideline story photography at the wedding reception showing ladies drinking gin from tea cups
Some wedding photographers may feel the need to include the bride or groom in every picture, but those photos convey only part of the day's record. Most WPJA members will probably tell you that you're not fully documenting the event unless you get out there on the periphery and record the subplots of the wedding day—the unique and intersecting stories of the guests as they enjoy the festivities. We call these types of pictures “sideline shots,” and they are distinct from the standard reaction...Read more
Wedding photography article about Client Reviews, Testimonials and Letters  - The bride writes her vows in the attic of a historic victorian mansion
Imagine going to the mailbox in the morning. Out from between the utility bills and the nail salon coupons falls a smallish envelope containing a folded handwritten note. On it, it reads: Our day was truly magical because of you and your talents. Whenever we look upon our wedding photos, we are instantly transported back to the moment; laughing and crying all over again. Thank you for such a priceless gift. This is a summary of actual client letters from WPJA members’ weddings. It’s...Read more
Wedding Photograph taken as bridesmaids see bride in her dress for the first time and showing their reactions
To document the best moments of a wedding day, a photographer shouldn’t only focus on the bride and groom , or even on the main event. "Reaction shots," which record the reactions of guests observing the wedding’s activities as they occur, add an invaluable dimension to the visual record of the festivities. “I was constantly given a gentle reminder to look beyond the obvious action while covering sports assignments while on staff at The Hartford Courant newspaper,...Read more
Wedding Photography of Parents - ceremony image showing the handover by the father of the bride to the groom
In the 1950 classic film Father of the Bride , George, played by Spenser Tracy, watches his daughter Annie, played by Elizabeth Taylor, take her wedding vows and says to himself, “I realized at that moment that I was never going to come home again and see Annie at the top of the stairs. Never going to see her again at our breakfast table in her nightgown and socks...Annie was all grown up and leaving us, and something inside began to hurt.” The scene may be fiction, but the emotion behind it is...Read more
